Michelle and her husband live in Baton Rouge with their six pets; Izzy a Siamese mix, Tigger an orange tabby, Zoe a French Bulldog, Kobe a British Lab which is her husband's Diabetic Alert Dog (aka DAD for short), Tucker a Boxer, and Leonidas a Bengal.
She moved to Baton Rouge in 2006 to attend LSU, where she received her degree in Animal Science and Technology. She was hired at Jefferson Animal Hospital right after graduating from LSU in 2011. She is now kennel and surgery manager.
Michelle’s father was a veterinarian and animals have always been a constant in her life. She has owned a wide range of pets, everything from cats and dogs to emus and chameleons. She has always enjoyed caring for animals. Her very fist job was working as a veterinary assistant with her father. He introduced her to the field of veterinary care and taught her how important her job is in caring for the animals.
